Urban Living XXL in Boston, Massachusetts in Ruhl Walker Architects

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

This Boston loft – nearly 5,000 SF with 18-foot high ceilings – presented a number of amazing opportunities and more than a few challenges.  Chief among the opportunities was amplifying the immensity of the central living space – one of the largest in the city – while making an understandable and livable family house.  Two monolithic organizing walls and a floating ceiling plane anchor the space and orient the occupant without disturbing its vastness or disrupting sightlines.

Medical Home in Leominster, Massachusetts by Margulies Perruzzi Architects designed using Revit

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Article source: Margulies Perruzzi Architects


Fallon Clinic is a large multi-specialty medical group practice located throughout Central Massachusetts. After designing multiple facilities for Fallon, Margulies Perruzzi Architects was tasked to design a pilot “medical home” family practice for Fallon Clinic in Leominster. The term “medical home” refers to an innovative healthcare delivery method that provides a team of healthcare professionals, rather than one doctor, who offer a wide range of services with four main functions: educate, monitor, guide and reach out. Efficiency and flexibility of both space and healthcare professionals are crucial.

Article source: Map-Lab, inc.

The International Living Future Institute launched the Living City Design Competition in 2010, seeking designs for our cities in the year 2035. map-lab’s submission was ResilienCity. ResilienCity seeks to set the vision for the future of Boston’s Innovation District, a new neighborhood built on greyfield and brownfield sites that will provide residences and workplaces for over 300,000 people. We have reached the tipping point where we need to think of the whole, not the self. We have arrived at a time when we need to stop behaving selfishly and begin to explore how we can all come together as a community to create environments that are culturally enriching, healthier, and equitable. We come back to nature to do this.

Located in Lincoln, Massachusetts, a suburb just 13 miles from Boston, this house’s dynamic sculptural form developed in dialogue with the landscape, topography and zoning considerations of a 12-acre site of environmentally sensitive land that bears traces of its former use as a Christmas tree farm. The house is setback from the street on a common driveway shared by two adjacent houses, which preserves the character of the quiet country road and creates a pleasing arrival sequence leading up to the house.
